Representative Text

1 Have you heard the blessed story,
Christ will come again?
Come with angels in His glory,
Yes, He’ll come again;
And the time is near at hand
When before Him we shall stand
To inherit glory land,
When He comes again.

When He comes again, when he comes again,
We will all go out to meet Him,
And with joyous shouts will greet Him,
When He comes again.

2 Let the blessed truth sound out,
Christ will come again!
Send it forth in son, and shout,
That He’ll come again;
Tell the story of the cross,
Send the word, to warn the lost,
Tell them He has paid the cost,
And will come again. [Chorus]

3 Let us work each precious hour
Till He comes again;
Overcoming by His power,
Till He comes again;
Then at last we’ll win the race,
In His kingdom have a place,
And behold Him face to face,
When He comes again. [Chorus]
